In light of the potential rise in filings, the Louisiana Workforce Commission wants all to know the requirements necessary for individuals to receive their unemployment benefits:
“For an individual to receive their weekly unemployment benefits, they MUST file their Weekly Certification by Sunday of each week they are unemployed.
Filing your Weekly Certification can be compared to filling out a weekly timesheet.
Although Governor John Bel Edwards signed Executive Order 2020-30 to waive the job search requirement, individuals MUST still let the Louisiana Workforce Commission know, weekly, that he or she is still unemployed and that their situation has not changed.
An Individual WILL NOT receive benefits if their weekly certification is not filed.
Weekly Certifications can be filed at www.louisianaworks.net or by calling 1-866-783-5567″
